The Blogosphere ~ Thankful Thursday

Well, here it is again - Thankful Thursday! I’m so happy to be able to offer up “Thanks” regularly for the many wonderful blessings I have, whether large or small, significant or mundane. I’d like to offer a special thank you to Iris at her blog, Sting My Heart for hosting this wonderful Meme. If you would like to participate or just read from more thankful hearts, pop on over to Thankful Thursday and join us.

As always, there’s much to be thankful for. One thing that has been a particular blessing for me since becoming a SAHM, is the wonderful blogging community I’ve become involved with. So, this week I am thankful for:

~ My wonderful bloggy friends who encourage me, and my writing, by their kind words and prayers. They truly made a difference when we lost our beloved dog Ashley in late July and had our second miscarriage in middle August.

~ The many blogs I frequent that are filled with God’s Word and Wisdom. Sometimes it’s like going to church every day. I love reading the insights God gives to others and frequently read a post and say, “Wow that was great!”

~ The fantastic links and resources that others share which help me to stretch and grow, as a person, wife, mother, Christian and writer.

~ The opportunity to participate in Weekly Meme’s like Word-Filled Wednesday, Thankful Thursday and Fiction Friday. It is a lot of fun to participate, share and read what others are sharing.

~ The amazing way God has used me to touch the lives of others, by writing a word that someone has needed to hear. It is mind boggling to me, that I could provide a thought, word of encouragement or award, at just the right time, to someone who I’m not even aware of having a need. I am completely humbled still, that He uses me in this way.

Thank you all for blessing me so many times, in so many ways! Thank you God, for providing this inlet and outlet for me.

I'm so sorry about your miscarriage. I had one back in '95. I wrote about it in a couple of devotions. I hope you will take some time to read them, as they may help you as you journey the road of grief.

Tracy, thank you for blessing me with your words, and just for being you. And yes, it's like going to church everyday!

I agree! The friends we meet in blog-world open up in a way that allows God's Word and His Spirit to excite me - like going to church (only without having to put on nylons and makeup)
Happy Thankful Thursday!

I've been blessed also as a SAHM through my bloggy friendships. I like the colors of your blog layout.

God bless!
